India captain Rohit Sharma notched up a sublime fifty as the tourists thrashed England by 10 wickets after a career-best performance of 6-19 by Jasprit Bumrah in the first One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series at the Oval on Tuesday.

Rohit (76 not out) and fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan (31 not out) made light work of England’s 110, knocking off the victory target with 31.2 overs to spare.

Earlier, England had a horror start after being put in to bat when Bumrah rattled Jason Roy’s stumps with an in-swinger and then deceived Joe Root two balls later with a delivery that nipped away. Both players failed to get off the mark.

Ben Stokes also perished for a golden duck in the following over, edging behind off Mohammed Shami (3-31), before Bumrah accounted for Jonny Bairstow (seven) and Liam Livingstone (0) to leave England reeling at 26-5 in overcast conditions.

Captain Jos Buttler (30) and Moeen Ali (14) led a brief recovery but both were dismissed in quick succession before a 35-run ninth-wicket stand between David Willey (21) and Brydon Carse (15) pushed England past 100.
